The wolf centre is a great place to visit. The wolves are really health and the staff are caring and knowledgeable. The wolves get to go out into the woods and run their natural environment.

We visited on their open day and had a very nice time with a lot of excellent presentations on wolves and Canada's policy on wolf culling (not good). The First Nation dancing and story telling was also very good. If you want to learn about...More
